This is something I've wanted for years in org-mode, but which in some 
ways could actually be _offensive_ to its ideals.  If you're an outline 
purist, look away.

It's something we can do with plain lists: work on a list item at level 
X, then make a sublist at level X+1, and then "pop" back up to the same 
list item you had been working on at level X, without needing a new 
header.  You just adjust the indentation.

   + Some stuff at this level.

   + More stuff at this level.

     Might even have multiple paragraphs.

     - a sublevel, for a digression

     And back to the same higher level, even without a new bullet.

I use org-mode to keep daily notes at work, sometimes almost 
stream-of-consciousness, and often wished I could digress and then pop back.

So, I present a pre-alpha version, 
https://gist.github.com/clsn/09ac4b098b6ad7366bb5e0bc88882d5f of 
org-pop-mode.  To "pop" back up, create a headline at the level you're 
popping back to, and give it a tag of "contd", and the headline text 
should not be something important.  Instructions and explanations are in 
the comments of the file (the part about installing from MELPA is a lie, 

Any feedback?
